How do you want to carry these Chanel Quilted Pouches? They look simple, eye-catching, but be caution…they can make your friends very jealous.

Quilted, with the famous tiny CC embellished on the front – yes ladies, it’s Chanel time. You can do a lot with these pouches, for example you can use it as an evening item. Imagine you in your favorite dress and pumps, holding this baby with your hands.

Or you can use it as a cosmetic pouch but not advisable though because most of the time it will end up in your room. It will be a waste of beauty.


You see, the options are endless because the Chanel Lambskin Pouches comes in three sizes. You have the large size, which is great as an eveningwear. But you also have the small size and the micro size; both are well sized and can be stored in your bag.

So what do you think?

Chanel’s Cruise 2016 Collection is full of wonderful surprises…and the Boy Chanel Quilted Crest Flap Bag is no exception. It’s absolutely a winner! We couldn’t help but melt at the sight of these gorgeous babies, because just like the Classic Flap Bags, they’ve earned a spot in the hearts of bag lovers and aficionados. And why not? They’ve been revamped a hundred times over the seasons and we still couldn’t get enough. Well done, Chanel!

Off to our main event, we just couldn’t help but marvel at the sight of these quilted pieces – for the Cruise 2016 collection, the bags are made with only the finest patent calfskin and goatskin (truly luxe materials, you’d say). And also, let’s not forget about the crest which lies just on top of the bag – navy blue CCs which tend to stand-out against the quilted background. The ‘Boy’ clasp still shines as bright as day, and comes in an exquisite black and gold color that’s definitely off the charts.

Wardrobe Inspiration – The Chanel Jacket


For those in the United States, I hope you all had a great holiday weekend! I had a nice time relaxing and seeing friends and family. I also ordered some last minute baby stuff, the accumulation of which is starting to severely test my Konmari method attempts.

Thank you all for your comments and emails about my sale post last week. I was happy to hear that many of you were able to hop on Nordstrom’ deal on Longchamp bags, and I think I have some twins out there of my beige and black Chanel jackets as well!

Now, On the topic of Chanel jackets – even on sale, these suckers are expensive, so for each one I always have to make sure I’ll get decent wear out of them. I’ve received a few emails asking for Chanel/Chanel esque styling ideas, and I thought I would share some of my favorite inspiration with all of you. Let’s start with one of the ultimate French cool girls, Vanessa Paradis.

Chanel Jacket Vanessa Paradis

The Cambon bag she’s holding on the left might look dated to some, but that black jacket still looks fresh and modern. I think this was from a 2004 campaign? So more than a decade back! The jacket on the right is one of my favorites ever, from 2013. Love how she wears both with jeans.

Next up, a bit more formal:

Chanel Jacket Cool Kids

On the left, Poppy Delevingne in a 2015 cruise jacket (you can see the black version in my spring sale post – she wears it much better than my dress form). On the right, Christine Centenera in a 2013 double breasted jacket and skirt combo.

Now, some examples in gray!

Chanel Jacket Miroslava

Miroslava Duma on the left – I like how she wears her Chanel usually, very youthful – and on the right the ultra cool Clémence Poésy, who always pairs her Chanel with the perfect casual pieces and perfect “messy” hair.

Next, how about some ladies in white?

Chanel White Jacket 2

Miranda Kerr and Cameron Diaz both pairing their jackets with jeans. I love the look of a cream Chanel jacket – I’m still looking for my perfect one. Though I think I would be paranoid about stains.

Chanel White Jacket

Next, Natasha Goldenberg and Kate Moss, both in the same cream/black tipped Chanel jacket.

And finally….

Chanel Kate Moss

…our favorite, Kate Moss, in a cardigan from 2011 and a jacket from 2007. I love both of these looks (I’ve posted them before on the blog) and it’s due both to Kate’s styling as well as the classic nature of the jacket themselves, that the outfits look perfectly modern today.

Do you wear Chanel style jackets/cardigans? What are some of your favorite inspirations for styling them?

The Chanel Reissue 224

Other Brands

Today I thought I would do a review on one of my favorite versatile bags that I frequently take with me when we travel. I’ve been receiving more questions about crossbody bag recommendations, and this is one of my favorites. The bag in question is the classic Chanel reissue, in the (I believe) tiniest size, the 224. Reissues start at 224, and go from 225, 226, 227, all the way to 228.

Chanel 224 Reissue

Chanel makes a lot of great “mini” bags including the popular “mini” flap and the wallet on chain, but I ended up choosing the reissue style in the end because the small size was essentially a smaller version of the larger bag, in everything from construction to design. A lot of the time I find that these smaller bags have made some tradeoffs in design (of course there’s usually a cost savings as well) – pockets are missing, or the strap is smaller, etc.

The reissue in the 224 size has everything its larger siblings have – the double flap, zip pocket, front open pocket, leather lining.

Chanel 224 Reissue Open

You probably have to be a lover of mini bags (as I am) to really like the 224. The bag, while small, I think holds a good amount for its little size. Just the essentials – my iPhone 6 Plus (yes with a case), a small card case (not pictured, I use the Citizen Twill from Hermes), sunglasses in a thin cloth pouch, and a lipstick. There’s a small pocket in the back that I use for tickets, a metro card, etc.

Chanel Reissue 224 What Fits Inside

And now..a demonstration of why I love this bag and bring it with me on travels often. you can wear it a bunch of ways…including crossbody! The best way to wear a bag while traveling, in my opinion.

Chanel 224 Reissue Front

I also like that this little bag really easily transitions from day to evening….you can just double up the straps for a chic night out.

Chanel 224 Reissue Side

The reissue can also be folded flat, though I can understand why some people might hesitate to do so. I do fold mine when I pack it in my carryon, and it’s always survived the flight easily.

Chanel 224

Overall, I can highly recommend this little bag – it’s a classic and one of my favorites that Chanel makes. If I had unlimited funds I would definitely be looking into another color – but for now I’m happy with my black!

A big downside is the price. Chanel is of course always expensive. The 224 retails now for something like $4000 (last time I checked) – its equivalent on the classic flap side, the mini flap, is somewhere around $2700 I believe? That’s quite a difference! And wow, the prices just keep going up, every time I check.

By the way – for a few alternate versions of this bag, I’d recommend the Stella McCartney Falabella for a fraction of the price (under $1,000), as well as the PS1 by Proenza Schouler (fits more as well), for under $1,400.
